AWS#3 Glacier Valley Snowmachine Tour
There is nothing like the thrill of driving your own snowmobile! Riders over 16 each get their own machine to cruise through the wilderness on this 8-hour tour. On these machines, we can really see "back country" like we cannot from the highway. Many Alaskans own their own machines and spend the winter weekends outdoors basking in the midday sun and cruising the wilderness on snowmobiles, pumping up the adrenaline - it's what keeps us going! You won't regret really getting out there to see what the Chugach Mountains have to offer you. Wind through open fields, see beaver ponds, and frozen waterfalls. Under the right conditions your professional snowmobile guide will take you out to the glacier to see the icebergs and caves! Considered by many as a “Blue Ice Paradise!” Tour includes transportation, winter gear, glacier water, snacks.
Departure: January - March, 8-Hours Rate: $399.00
AWS#4 Turnagain Arm Snowshoe Trips
Scenic drive on the Seward Hwy. Once in Girdwood, we’ll take the tram up the mountain for the view of the valley below. You’ll be able to see the inlet, the valley, and the snowy meadows where we will snowshoe. Next we descend on the tram and strap on the snowshoes. Heading off into the forest, your guide will talk about the history of snowshoes and the technique to using them successfully. This is a one-hour walk through a rainforest and snowy meadows of Glacier Valley. We will warm up with homemade soup sourdough bread, dessert, and beverages at The Bake Shop! Lastly, we’ll head to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. The Center houses rescued wild Alaskan animals that were injured or orphaned and would not have survived on their own.
